Abstract:The paper shows the import of the event structure in the process of semantic composition within the noun phrase. To this purpose, we take the case of the Romanian adjective fericit („happy”), in its evaluative and nonemotional meaning, and we show that this adjective is allowed to only modify deverbal nouns with a specific aspectual structure. We also show that certain meaning differences between NPs containing this adjective may be explained through given aspectual differences between nouns modified by the adjective fericit. The semantic theory which lies behind our analysis is the Generative Lexicon (Pustejovsky 1995).
Key words:adjective, event, aspectual structure, semantic composition, noun phrase
